College Basketball Betting Trends
The Aggies are 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games. Texas A&M are 4-0 ATS in its last four Tuesday games.
The Tigers are 5-1 ATS in their last six Tuesday games. LSU is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 games overall.
This is a prime letdown spot after the big win over the weekend by The Tigers. It helps that they are at home again, but I could see a lackluster performance against an Aggies team coming in with a bit of confidence after a win. I'm taking the points with the dogs tonight.
